Cheltenham Poetry Festival
With Alison Brackenbury, Ann Drysdale, Angela France, Joy Howard, Pat Simmons and Christine Webb.
Required reading for all ages but especially for the young-and-grumpy-in-heart. ‘This world’, say these poets, ‘is not a better place. Deal with it’, they say. Then they show us how. Penelope Shuttle (re Get Me Out of Here!)
Seriously good poetry…the fruit of long-life experience – brave writing, full of love and subversive wit and lyricism. R V Bailey (re Cracking On)
‘Nothing mimsy about these poems by older women. Fierce, funny, disturbing and fairly vicious. Lovely’. Michele Hanson (re A Twist of Malice)
